this to happen all along because he is on the record along with harry reid, kathleen sebelius, tom harkin saying obamacare is a way station on the way to single-payer. i don't have a thought the disaster would have been the way it did and probably happened so fast. if this president was really sincere, there is an immediate fix making its way through congress right now in a bipartisan way which is a bill that would restore the health plans allowing americans to keep the plans they like and they can afford. back in 2010 republicans put forward a bill to do exactly that, making sure guarantees were in place. they said absolutely not. they may change their tune now, but i'm not so sure they will move in that direction. gregg: you saw jay carney a moment ago, you almost feel sorry for him because he is trying to justify that which is arguably unjustifiable are. he minimizes it, it is just a small% of american people. that small comfort to the millions of folks losing their policies and paying something bigger. this is only going to get worse? >> it is. this just affects about 15 million people. 15 m

for numbers. secretary kathleen sebelius has insisted she's not going to report any numbers until next week. senators orrin hatch and chuck grassley who questioned her about this on the finance committee, out with numbers this morning. they say they have contacted the four insurers on the washington, d.c., exchange, and as far as insurers are concerned, only five people at this point are enrolled. two of them at care first blue cross blue shield, three at kaiser-permanente, none at united health and aetna. however, you have to take these numbers with a grain of salt. because the d.c. exchanges has officially reported that as of october 21st, they had 164 people who had enrolled, those enrollments paid and there were 321 total who had selected plans. so this could be an issue with a lot of those insurance documents, sue, not making their way to the insurers but people having completed the process, one of the things that the secretary has said one of the reasons why she hasn't given interim numbers. >> absolutely, bertha. thank you very much. >>> let's go to dominic chu, he has a quick market
and human services secretary kathleen sebelius weighed in to say there is no plan to help people who lost their health care and now face way higher health care costs. >> there isn't i would say a specific plan. the president has asked to take a look at those coverage options. but there isn't any specific proposal at the table immediately. >> ouch! on top of that republicans put out some shockingly abysmal numbers of enrollment in one city, washington, d.c. jim, another rough day. >> reporter: president obama was down in new orleans. he nounced that fixing the problems playinging the website will be far from it. he did not touch on that apology he offered to americans who were losing their health insurance. officials do insist they're searching for solutions for those consume here's are seeing their coverage canceled. obama care continues to be in critical condition. senate republicans released letters from top insurance companies indicating only five people signed up in washington, d.c. in october. the d.c. officials said those numbers don't show the whole picture of enrollment and intere
. of recent notoriety, kathleen sebelius, health and human services secretary who saw the disastrous rollout of the president's health care plan. she fell on her sword at a house committee hearing, apologized, and then threw under the proverbial bus two other women who had senior roles in devising the system. samantha power, media hungry ambassador to the u.n. reportedly caught mr. obama's attention after writing a book about genocide in rwanda, her specialty. she recently told "vogue" magazine after all these years of doing atrocity work i still cry my eyes out every time i read the paper in the morning. miss powers thinks troops should intervene anywhere in defense of humanitarian causes including libya. she never tires of talking about balancing the care of her husband and two young children and her position in world affairs. while not appointed by mr. obama, lois lerner was a devoted democratic partisan before she was forced to resign as ahead of the exempt organization division of the irs. lerner was caught targeting her extra scrutiny christian and conservative groups who applied for t
. you can imagine, martha, if there were a change at the top, if kathleen sebelius was fired, he would be left with a vacancy at top of hhs and a long drawn-out confirmation battle. >> matthew dowd, let's turn to you, it sounds for policy reasons and efficiency reasons, perhaps, they shouldn't have any heads rolling right now, but the optics of this are so bad. >> to rebuild trust is to bring new people in. to me this presidency and actually the last presidency that i was involved in with the elections they have done a great job of delegation but they haven't a great job of the second half of a mba person which is accountability. to enforce accountability is to bring in new people when something like this happens. i think at some point, the president needs to demonstrate, i can delegate things but i can also hold accountable people. when things are messed up. >> david plouffe, is that what you would do? >> i think they're in triage as jonathan said. once the website gets fixed, what do i need to have confidence going forward to implement this law? not only in the comes months, but the
indicated they have expected them to be very low. that was the exact language used by kathleen sebelius. they criteria the example of massachusetts wherein the first month of what was a year-long enrollment period, just 123 people signed up, which was just .3% of the entire number. perhaps more significantly right now, one of the bigger concerns for this white house is the scramble to try to fix the website, to try to improve the total number of individuals that sign up. the number by the cbo, the suggestion was that they wanted to have about 7 million people signed up over the course of the six-moen rollment period. but jeffrey zients acknowledged it was not really clear whether they would be all set by the end of the month, saying we are not where we need to be. we're not where we want to be, to use his exact language. >> and yet the president has given himself, as it were, that deadline of the end of this month, isn't he? >> yeah, that's exactly right. this has been something very important to the president over the weekend. white house aides confirmed to me, there was an unsparing d
